Langevin dynamical simulations are performed to determine the bulk modulus in two-dimensional (2D) dusty plasmas from uniform periodic radial compressions. The bulk modulus is calculated directly from its physical definition of the ratio of the internal pressure/stress to the volume strain. Under various conditions, the bulk moduli obtained agree with the previous theoretical derivations from completely different approaches. It is found that the bulk moduli of 2D Yukawa solids and liquids are almost independent of the system temperature and the external compressional frequency.
