The purpose of this article is to accurately evaluate the stopping distances of 3D deflector using tunable rheological features of smart fluids. Experimental characteristics of the chosen fluids are changed into smooth polynomial functions in accordance to the form of experimental graph and small total difference of ordinate values. Braking action and motion are modeled using a stepped approximation method, which is simple to use. This method was performed with Microsoft Excel program.
