For the numerical simulation of the fractional quantum Hall (FQH) effects on a finite disk, the rotational symmetry is the only symmetry that is used in diagonalizing the Hamiltonian. In this work, we propose a method of using the weak translational symmetry for the center of mass of the many-body system. With this approach, the bulk properties, such as the energy gap and the magneto-roton excitation are consistent with those in the closed manifolds like the sphere and torus. As an application, we consider the FQH phase and its phase transition in the fast rotated dipolar fermions. We thus demonstrate the disk geometry having versatility in analyzing the bulk properties beside the usual edge physics.
