CPTU-what does "U" here stand for?
Reply to this posting
"U" stands for "pore pressure". "CPTU" is short for "piezocone", which is a Cone Penetrometer equipped to measure pore pressure at the cone point (usually just behind the cone; the measurement is then called "U2".

In my memory, the pore pressure is expressed as "U" in Soil Mechanics.
