A temperature-dependent resistivity shunted junction (RSJ) model with a piecewise linear quasiparticle characteristic has been used in simulations to predict the flux dynamics in a superconducting ring containing a single Josephson junction. The computed results for relative flux penetration do not agree well with experimental data at temperatures approaching Tc . This indicates either that the subgap damping is not directly deducible from junction tunneling characteristics, or that the RSJ model is not sufficiently general in this situation.
