Numerical studies of dislocation pair correlations have played a central role in deriving a continuum theory from the equations of motion of 2D dislocation systems in a mathematically rigorous way. As part of an effort to extend this theory into the full 3D dislocation problem, 3D dislocation pair correlations were studied with discrete dislocation dynamics simulation. As a first approximation, dislocations were modeled as uncharged curves in space (their Burgers vectors were disregarded). An inverse square decay with distance was found to describe the numerically obtained pair correlations of the studied curve system.
