Variational methods are investigated asymptotically and numerically to model water waves in tanks with wave generators. As a validation, our modelling results using (dis)continuous Galerkin finite element methods will be compared to a soliton splash event resulting after a sluice gate is removed during a finite time in a long water channel with a contraction at its end.
