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).
