In order to investigate the fundamental aspects of damage evolution under irradiation computer simulations of the interaction between a dislocation and point defects such as a self-interstitial atom (SIA), a vacancy and interstitial clusters have been performed for various configurations. It is found both in Fe and Ni that a crowdion with axis parallel to the Burgers vector of an edge dislocation interacts more strongly than those with other axis orientations. The same tendency was seen for the dumbbell. The capture range (capture area) within which SIAs are trapped by an edge dislocation is larger for Ni than for Fe, and that for vacancies is much smaller than that for SIAs, suggesting that the bias factor in Ni is larger than that in Fe.
