Default Chapters and what do they excel at?

Just wondering as to what each chapter excels at with regards to shooting, CC, heavy support, Fast Attack, Flamers, Anti Tank, Scouts and anything else anyone can think of?

A forum search could likely get you many answers but here are two long articles I've written that cover a number of chapters:

Chapters of Legend Part 1
Tactics of the Adeptus Astartes

Wikipedia and the GW site also can yield a great ammount of information. Sometimes it benefits to do your own research.

I play a few armies, Blood Angels and Space Wolves are mainly assault based armies. Ultramarines are well balanced, Imperial fists are pretty shooty i'd say, Blood ravens have infiltrate for tac and dev squads which means they can catch the enemy in a pretty lethal cross fire so they're mainly shooty as well. Dark angels obviously have multiple options including Death wing and Raven wing so they can go any way you want. Black templars have a good mix and most templar armies have a good amount of scouts. Salamanders love meltas! Too many to mention mate.

There are a lot of chapters out there, hundreds in fact that GW has mentioned alone. Really we can't help you on such broad terms, use Google, wikipedia or even a forum search to find tons of information. From there just skim. You can even look at pictures it's not exactly rocket science.

Blood Ravens- Infiltrating Guns
Dark Angels- Mobile Guns
Space Wolves- Space Vikings duh!
Blood Angels- Fast blades
Raven Guard- Almost as fast blades
Black Templars- plenty of blades and a bit of shooting too

and there are more, many, many more.

Ok then lets narrow it down to chapters that use a large amout of devastators and a chapter that uses a lot of vehicles then.
Bluenose thanks for the input it was very helpful

There are really none specifically. Each Chapter does multiple things, leaning generally towards one aspect of combat but in varying forms.

However Imperial Fists tend to be very siege and defence oriented in which Devastators are not a bad way to go. Generally just look at the traits in the codex. Pick the ones you want and pick a chapter you want. There are tons out there and many are just a name and a color scheme, with no real background to them.
