Beams for Garage

I want to put two steel beams as structural support for my 30x30 garage spaced 10 feet apart. I'll be using 12" "all joist" engineered beams on 16" center above these to support storage space and a small loft. There is no support inside the garage and I'll want to use the beams with a chain fall and trolly to lift up to 1,000 pounds occasionally. The exterior walls sit on 8" cinder blocks with a treated sill plate. I was planning on using a 3" steel pipe as support. What size S beams would I need for support?

Thanks

You need to determine your loading conditions and use one of the beam deflection calculators on this webpage  /beam_calc_menu.shtml .

You can determine the moment of inertia from the following web page /section_properties_menu.shtml  or /structural_shapes_menu.shtml .

Thanks, when I plug in a S12x35 I get a deflection of .66 inch. Does that seem reasonable?
