The image of "mountain" has a relatively high degree of conformity with the shape of the arch bridge. The design of the arch ring of this bridge pays more attention to the connotation of mechanics while paying more attention to cultural symbols. Triangular arches and radial cables have corresponding mechanical connections. The interlacing of multiple triangular arches increases the mechanical stability of the arch ring and gives it a vivid shape.
