The present work presents how scaling analysis can be applied into multiphysics and multicoupled problems related to welding processes. The formation of the weld pool surface depression in high current and velocity Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) is dominated by the gas shear acting on the weld pool. Considering this dominant force the weld penetration was estimated and compared to experimental results. Plastic deformation and heat flow are coupled phenomena in Friction Stir Welding (FSW), the maximum temperature was estimated using scaling analysis and compared with experimental and numerical results reported in the literature. Although the simplicity of the scaling models, they are capable of capturing correct trends and order of magnitudes of the unknown estimations in a problem. Moreover, they are capable of determining the dominant forces that act on the process studied.
