I apologize for the delay.
Are the roof members 40' long that the beam will support? This will affect the lateral capacity of the structure and that should be investigated
Thank you. I will size the beam now
Steel is ASTM A992 Gr. 50 and assumed braced along the length
24' span is W14x43, 28' span is W14x53.
Great. Good luck with your project. Happy Thanksgiving
