Recognizing high-rise building water-use maneuver should be helpful for developing some practical strategies when indoor room space safety becomes a crucial feature in the building operation. This paper presents a data-processing approach for exploring the water-use maneuver of high-rise building. This approach combines the empirical mode decomposition and statistical analysis to process the mezzanine-floor air-pressure data measured in the drainage stack system of Li Ka-Shing building at PolyU of Hong Kong on 28th of April of 2008. Because the mezzanine-floor air-pressure signals in the building drainage system are recorded within about 10 hours with a recording rate of one signal per second, data re-sampling is obviously needed. Otherwise, the direct application of empirical mode decomposition should be unavailable because the mezzanine-floor air-pressure data are too massive. Statistical analysis is further encompassed after the empirical mode decomposition to seek the influences of re-sampling time interval and the empirical mode decomposition index so that the building water-use maneuver can be understood in detail.
