An exact relationship is found between the thermal expansion coefficients and certain compliances of statistically homogeneous, but not isotropic, polycrystalline aggregates composed of crystals of hexagonal, tetragonal or trigonal symmetry. The method generalizes some of the results of Hashin, J. Mech. Phys. Solids, 32, 149-157 (1984).
