German term or phrase: Abstellung
Alle Betonierfugen sind mit Abstellungen herzustellen, die eine rauhe Anschlussoberflaeche sicherstellen.

English translation:jut
Explanation:
The Betonierfugen are obviously construction joints, and a search on the Internet brings up the following match:

"z.B. Aufkantungen, Abstellungen für Arbeitsfugen"
"e.g. upstands and juts for construction joints."

So it seems they are some kind of projection, or overhang, nub etc.

Hope that helps a bit.
