The interactions between the moving dislocation within matrix channel and the interfacial misfit dislocation networks on the two-phase interfaces in Ni-based single crystal superalloys are studied carefully via atomic modeling, with special focus on the factors influencing the critical bowing stress of moving dislocations in the matrix channel. The results show that the moving matrix dislocation type and its position with respect to the interfacial misfit dislocation segments have considerable influences on the interactions. If the moving matrix dislocation is pure screw, it reacts with the interfacial misfit dislocation segments toward dislocation linear energy reduction, which decreases the critical bowing stress of screw dislocation due to dislocation linear energy release during the dislocation reactions. If the moving matrix dislocation is of 60 degrees-mixed type, it is obstructed by the interaction between the mixed matrix dislocations and the misfit interfacial dislocation segments. As a result, the critical bowing stress increases significantly because extra interactive energy needs to be overcome. These two different effects on the critical bowing stress become increasingly significant when the moving matrix dislocation is very close to the interfacial misfit dislocation segments. In addition, the matrix channel width also has a significant influence on the critical bowing stress, i.e. the narrower the matrix channel is, the higher the critical bowing stress is. The classical Orowan formula is modified to predict these effects on the critical bowing stress of moving matrix dislocation, which is in good agreement with the computational results.
