Let denote the distance matrix of a connected graph . The inertia of is the triple of integers ( ), where , , and denote the number of positive, 0, and negative eigenvalues of , respectively. In this paper, we mainly study the inertia of distance matrices of some graphs related to wheel graphs and give a construction for graphs whose distance matrices have exactly one positive eigenvalue.
