The objective of this study was to investigate the deformation behavior of bamboo bundle laminated veneer lumber (BLVL) manufactured with veneer preprocessing densification technology under low velocity impact loading. The influence of different preprocessing temperatures, times, and stacking sequences was studied with respect to impact loading. Laminates with bamboo bundles parallel to the length direction were labeled as type I, and cross-ply was labeled as type II. The results indicated that delamination and fiber breakage were the main damage models for BLVL made with veneer preprocessing densification technology, and its impact performance under a veneer prepressing temperature of 90 A degrees C and a time of 10 min was fairly comparable to that of BLVL without preprocessing densification. The impact index decreased as the densification temperature increased. The impact properties for type II were better than that of type I. The curve characteristic of impact deflection vs. time presented a linear trend, while the curve of impact velocity first decreased and then tended to level off as time elapsed.
