Spanning 23' with W14 22lbs/ft I...
Spanning 23' with W14 22lbs/ft
I have a 26' area with the above beams spaced 5'8" across the 26'.
Beam pockets have 4 inch bearing on each end, inside a 10" thick concrete wall, which has 5/8 rebar mat tied on 24" centers, and 3 5/8 inch vertical stirrup wrapped under each beam pocket inside the concrete wall.
Is this safe for a two car garage single story ranch?

I apologize for the delay. I was locked out of the question for a while.

You're asking just about the beam size, correct? What kind of deck/driving surface will you have?

3" 20ga composite decking with #5 rebar tied on 12 inch centers and nelson studs welded through deck to beams on 12 inch intervals with 5 1/2 inch concrete slab

That setup is more than adequate.
