A two-level approach has been proposed for describing the plastic deformation under high-rate loading of metals. The characteristics of the motion of dislocations under shear stresses have been investigated at the atomistic level by using the molecular dynamics simulation. The macroscopic motion of a material has been described at the continuum level with the use of the model of continuum mechanics with dislocations, which uses information obtained at the atomistic level on the dislocation dynamics. The proposed approach has been used to study the evolution of the dislocation subsystem under shock-wave loading of an aluminum target. The behavior of the dynamic yield stress with an increase in the temperature has been analyzed. The results of the calculations are in good agreement with experimental data.
