The main purpose of this paper is to present new mobile software, known as Concrete Test, which is used for collecting concrete data on site and immediately sending those collected data to a remote server. It works as follows; the researcher goes to the building and runs the application that is installed on the mobile device. Then he finds a suitable structural element such as a column, beam or slab, and makes some strength tests. Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV), Schmidt and Core Tests are allowed in the software. The user should use some specific tools to test the concrete. When the data entry process is complete, the researcher can send data immediately to the server via internet. This technology provides more accuracy and speed for inventory research. Copyright © 2011 by the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE.
