|English translation:cathode abutment|
Callaham's gives three possible meanings for контрфорс - counterfort, buttress, and abutment.
Only "cathode abutment" appears in Google, and only once.

Sorry, the link should end in .htmL and
the end of the sentence was chopped off: "....cathode protrusions or abutments, the desired electrolyte bath flow and controlled bubble release requirements of the cell may be achieved in a particularly economic manner.

cathode-to-anode secondary current (counter force)
A discussion in:
"Hence the decomposition cell behaves as if it has a resistance, which must at first be overcome so that the current impulse arises, then increases and indeed to a resistance, which only the decomposition tension overcomes. - In fact, it is like follows: From the instance of the first current impulse, the cell acts as a galvanic element and attempts to induce a current, which has the opposite direction to the electrolyzing current. Or in other words: From the instant of the current impulse, the cell develops an electromagnetic counter force (against the EMF, driving the electrolyzing current). Thr fact that the counterforce really exists is shown the experiment of Johann Wilhelm Ritter 1776-1810 1803: When you decompose acidified water between platinum electrodes, A as anode, K as cathode (Fig. 504), then interrupt the current and connect K and A outside the cell to each other, the cell acts like agalvanic element. A galvanometer in the circuit indicates a current, which flows in the water from K to A, that is, in the water, the electrolyzing current flows in the opposite direction. The electrode, which was the cathode, is now the negative, the other electrode, which was the anode, the positive pole. You call the current from K to A in the water the secondary current, the state, into which the primary current has put the electrodes, polarization, the electrodes polarized, and the seconday current (because it removes the polarization) depolarizing, the EMF between the polarized electrodes the electromotoric counter force of polarization."
