The dynamic dislocation-solute interaction is studied through a system integration method where a feedback mechanism is introduced to characterize the competition of pinning and depinning effects. The results self-consistently exhibit three branches of the interaction, two stable branches at low and high strain rate (or dislocation velocity) which correspond to the effective pinning or unpinning of dislocation, respectively, and a metastable one at the intermediate strain rate where negative strain rate sensitivities result from dynamic strain ageing. This unified description should be helpful to the studies of rate-softening plastic instability.
