    Unfortunately there aren't any.

    Up doesn't have a specific meaning in the phrasal verbs you have mentioned - the meaning is fused with the verb. Therefore you need to learn the phrasal verbs individually, as the adverbial particle itself gives no clues and follows no real rules most of the time.

    I am not a teacher.
