Stiffening Truss on girder's top flange to prevent LTB

(OP)
Am interested in designing a stiffening truss to prevent erected steel from buckling due to LTB, does anyone have a good reference on that ?

Thanks

Google D.B.Steinman's book on suspension bridges. FWIW, there are usually easier ways to brace a girder.
