Orbital elements for the 1 km (left panels) and 100 m sized planetesimals (right panels). The semi-major axes are shown in panels 1 and 2. In panels 3 and 4 eccentricity growth due to the Kozai effect is still apparent for both planetesimal sizes. The inclination is shown in panels 5 and 6, where the short dashed lines represent the disc inner and outer edge, and the long dashed line marks the threshold inclination above which the Kozai effect operates. In panels 7 and 8 the relative inclination with respect to the disc is shown, where the short dashed line indicates the one pressure scale height limit for the gas disc. The dash-dotted line represents the inclination of the binary orbit plane relative to the disc midplane.
