Orbital parameters and mass transfer rates over time after HeZAMS of various systems studied in this paper. Radii are mapped to the left hand y-axis of each diagram, mass transfer rates to the right. The eight-digit numbers in each diagram denote the identity of the represented system as defined by its initial parameters. The first two digits are equal to the mass of the donor star divided by 0.1 M, the second two digits are equal to the mass of the WD divided by 0.1 M, and the last four digits are equal to the initial orbital period divided by 0.001 d. [] is the time-averaged mass transfer rate, R1 the radius of the donor star, RRoche,1 the radius of the donor star roche lobe. RLOF 1 denotes times when R1RRoche,1 and, consequently, the donor star experiences Roche lobe overflow.
