In view of the recent technological development, the pursuit of safe high-precision structural designs has been the goal of most structural designers. To bridge the gap between the construction theories and the actual construction techniques, safety factors are adopted for designing the strength loading of structural members. If safety factors are too conservative, the extra building materials necessary will result in high construction cost. Thus, there has been a tendency in the construction field to derive a precise buckling load analysis model of member in order to establish accurate safety factors. A numerical analysis model, using modal analysis to acquire the dynamic function calculated by dynamic parameter to get the buckling load of member, is proposed in this paper. The fixed and simple supports around the circular plate are analyzed by this proposed method. And then, the monte Carlo method and the normal distribution method are used for random sampling and measuring errors of numerical simulation respectively. The analysis results indicated that this proposed method only needs to apply modal parameters of 7×7 test points to obtain a theoretical value of buckling load. Moreover, the analysis method of inequality-distant test points produces better analysis results than the other methods.
