The objective of this work is to provide a systematic method for the creation of all possible wheel damping mechanisms based on a parent mechanism. The original mechanism is generalized into a linkage type kinematic chain according to the rules defined. The self-assortment and the related assortments of this kinematic chain are derived by using the technqiue of number synthesis. These derived kinematic chains are respecialized, by applying the generalized rules backward based on some design constraints, to create a total of 98 new wheel damping mechanisms.
