Manfred Gregor 1967, Die Brücke page 225: "Am Auflager der Brücke hing ein Fetzen der Tarnjacke ...". Duden Universalwörterbuch 2011 defines it as "(Bauw.): Stützkörper, Fläche zum Tragen von Bauteilen." One English translation (thanks to beolingus) is "abutment."

Yet when I search for Auflager in wordreference, all it has is "auf Lager."

    Hi Codger, I have added the German translation for abutment, yet we still need to add an entry for the German dictionary.
    Thank you for your suggestion, good thinking! :)
