Abstract: It is commonly believed that dislocations cannot surmount the sound barrier at the shear wave velocity. This letter presents results of molecular dynamics simulation showing the contrary, namely that a stationary dislocation can be accelerated above the sound barrier provided that the theoretical shear strength is reached at the dislocation core and the total energy of a subsonic perfect dislocation is sufficiently high to cause its dissociation into transonic partial dislocations.
