Figure 4 presents a closer view of the bottom of the two graduated cylinders to compare the ﬁnal volume of the cement particles at 24 h. The left graduated cylinder presents the ﬂocculated cement particles that settled in pure water in the absence of a superplasticizer and the right one shows the cement particles that settled in the presence of a superplasticizer. The effect of the ﬂocculation of the cement particles on their ﬁnal volume is clearly observed in this ﬁgure. , 1963; Dodson, 1990).
