What does PPBW mean?

Partial Penetrated Butt Weld
Partial penetration welds do not fully consume the joint, so they are not as thick as the base material next to it. This makes the weld more likely to have less strength than the base material because it doesn't have the extra volume to resist stresses. Partial penetration welds have an unconsumed joint line that can act as a geometric stress concentrator. This can make the weld more likely to fail than the base material adjacent to it.
