In this paper, molecular dynamics simulation method was used to establish the atomic model of high entropy alloy. The effect of strain rate on the microstructure evolution and dislocation motion of FeNiCoCrCu high entropy alloy was studied by applying tension and compression loads at different strain rates. The results show that the stress-strain curve of FeNiCoCrCu high entropy alloy presents three stages of elastic deformation, yield and plastic deformation under high strain rate. Under tensile load, Frank dislocation causes plastic deformation of the material, and the dislocation reaction between Shockley dislocation and Hirth dislocation generates Stair-rod dislocation. The mechanism of stress relaxation of materials under compression load is the formation of stacking faults. One of the mechanisms of strain hardening of materials is the formation of twins. In addition, stacking faults intersect with each other to produce dislocation reactions, which generate Stair-rod dislocations, maintaining the development of strain hardening effect.
