Dynamic response analysis of a floating artificial base-building due to wave forces was studied, which structural system was named as a hybrid structural system. It was assumed to be constructed by the combination of elastic plate and framed structure. The hybrid structure system enabled the matrix size to reduce in FEM analysis, and the improvement of the calculation efficiency was succeeded. The developed calculation tool made it possible to examine the dynamic characteristic of the building on the floating base under the various wave conditions. The natural frequency analysis and the structural response analysis were capable, besides the evaluation of habitability in relation with oscillation caused by wave motion became possible using the diagram of our result of the research.
