We report on semilocal and hybrid density functional theory study of strained wurtzite crystals of InAs and InP. The crystal-field splitting has a large and nonlinear dependence on strain for both crystals. Moreover, the study of the electronic deformation potentials reveals that the well-known quasi-cubic approximation fails to reproduce the electronic features of the non-ideal c/a ratio. This theoretical study is of crucial importance for the simulation of self-assembled InAs or InP nanowires.
