Spanish term or phrase: buñas
By an ARgentine architect:

En la propia gramática de los procesos arquitectónicos existen ejemplos en los que se cristaliza el poder rector de la ausencia. El más claro, a mi manera de verlo, es aquel que se desprende del lenguaje compositivo del hormigón, donde el encofrado se perpetúa como estructura gramatical del mismo, a través de buñas, juntas, anclajes y texturas que le dan su carácter.

Seems to have something to do with a process called "stripping".
Thanks

bruñas
Con Ia finalidad de dar soluciones arquitectónicas a la ejecución del revestimiento, se introducen bruñas que se ejecutarán con todo cuidado a fin de que tanto sus aristas y los ángulos interiores presenten una línea continua de igual dimensión, su ejecución debe ser con tarraja en las dimensiones que se indican en planos.

English translation: v-shaped grooves // "struck"
Explanation: Leyendo el testo no te parece simplement una ranura en forma de V? En inglés cuando se talla una ranura en las junturas de un parede en ladrillos y mortero hablamos de una "struck joint" y se puede usar este verbo (lines/grooves are "struck") igualmente para designar los efectos de bloques de piedra en los revestimentos de cemento. Por el caso del piso mejor usar el v-shaped groove.

Los albaniles anglosasones usan el "Frenchman" para tallar el v-groove (wrg.org.uk) - es una hierramienta con hoja en forma de V

"true level lines should be struck - with no ragged edges" (eastherts.gov.uk)

"hydraulic lime plastering material enable the render to be applied to create traditional Stucco without synthetic textured effect or colouring. Traditional render features of ashlar grooves and struck joints can be formed in the render"

"V-shaped grooves are struck in the cement, carefully executed to ensure both the inside and outside angles of the V form a continuous and regular line..."

Uuf....!
