http://www.architonic.com/ seems to have some very nice case studies on materials

I’ve had a materialsexplorer account for some time now, and I’ve always loved them. As a student, I don’t get to ‘play’ with a lot of their stuff, but it’s always great to browse for information, and the search function allows you to find materials based on the properties you need, even if you have no idea what it is…
