material tables

I'm searching for a table/chart or reference that can list the different properties of particular materials.  Some of the properties I am looking for I will list below:

Impact Strength
Compressive Strength
Flexural Strength
Tensile Strength
Corrosion Resistance

I'm looking for base numbers for different materials, half polymers (e/s-glass and graphite, PVC foam)and half metals (tungsten, titanium, cobalt, nickel etc..) and common elements.  You'll have to excuse me if this question seems novice but I am a software developer and not a materials engineer so I'm not sure where I can obtain this information.  I have about fifty different elements and over a dozen different properties to look up for each one so any help is appreciated.  The name of a book, or a URL address will help greatly.

RE: material tables

I've got six-pack of Beer & Johnston textbooks.

One of 'em happens to specialize in what you need.

Mechanics of Materials
Second Edition
Authors: Beer & Johnston
McGraw Hill
ISBN: 0-07-911388-5

RE: material tables

Another good general reference work is:

"Smithells Metals Reference Book" Edited by E.A. Brandes & G.B. Brook ISBN 0-7506-3624-6
