    ...., indicating ....

    Each pile is driven to refusal, the point at which little additional penetration is made with continuing blows of the hammer, indicating that the pile is firmly embedded in the bearing layer.

    What is the subject of indicating in red?

    Thank you

    Re: ...., indicating ....

    There is no subject. "Indicating" is a present participle acting as a modifier.

    Re: ...., indicating ....

    Thank you.
    Then, can you tell me what is indicating that phrase? Is it just a word or the whole sentence in front?

    "Little additional penetration is made" is what is indicating that the pile is firmly embedded.
