I would like to ask a suggestion of a link, in which must contain Preposition's meaning applied to Phrasal Verbs, for instance:

A verb followed by a preposition "Up" can means: complete, increase and move, like: finish up,turn on, stand up.

To be more exactly what I want, would be a list where I could search meaning of preposition, or a word, like: "I would like to know what are the phrasal verbs that I can use to speak: to arrive, to enter etc..

I'm used to see phrasal verbs when I search a word definition, for example: Get

Is here I can see all phrasal verbs with "Get"

    There's an online Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs which may be what you're looking for. Ordinary dictionaries will give you the more common meanings of prepositions, and a thesaurus will give you synonyms for words, including p-verbs. – StoneyB Nov 22 '15 at 19:33

    To the extent that it can be done, dictionaries will give you that - look at Collins, for instance. – StoneyB Nov 22 '15 at 19:46
