Pore pressure (u) within a soil is the net pressure of the fluids within the voids that exist between the soil particles. Pore pressure is most commonly associated with pore water, which has a pore-water pressure (uw). Pressures of other fluids such as pore-air pressure (ua) and other non-soluble materials may be considered for specialized analyses.
