This book chapter concerns the thermomechanics involved in the process of friction stir welding and gives an overview of the numerical models found in literature focusing on the different physical phenomena taking place during this very complex joining process. The following topics are covered: (i) Thermal behavior, (ii) Microstructural evolution, (iii) Residual stresses and distortions and finally (iv) Thermomechanics including material flow.
