The periodically forced Rayleigh model is treated. In certain asymptotic conditions an averaged system is determined. Saddle-node and Hopf bifurcations for the averaged system are found. Codimension-one bifurcations of period-one solutions for suspended system are deduced. Theoretical and numerical results are seen to be in good agreement.
