Flood routing can be subclassified into hydraulic and hydrologic flood routing; the former yields accurate values but requires a large amount of data and complex calculations. The latter, in contrast, requires only inflow and outflow data, and has a simpler calculation process than the hydraulic one. The Muskingum model is a representative hydrologic flood routing model, and various versions of Muskingum flood routing models have been studied. The new Muskingum flood routing model considers inflows at previous and next time during the calculation of the inflow and storage. The self-adaptive vision correction algorithm is used to calculate the parameters of the proposed model. The new model leads to a smaller error compared to the existing Muskingum flood routing models in various flood data. The sum of squares obtained by applying the new model to Wilson’s flood data, Wang’s flood data, the flood data of River Wye from December 1960, Sutculer flood data, and the flood data of River Wyre from October 1982 were 4.11, 759.79, 18,816.99, 217.73, 38.81 (m3
, respectively. The magnitude of error for different types of flood data may be different, but the error may be large if the flow rate of the flood data is large.
