English translation:similarity theory for wave breaking
Explanation:
"leyes de semejanza" is the similarity theory/laws, which is used in the field of flow mechanics (which is your context).

"rotura de oleaje" (note the spelling) means wave breaking.

Here are some examples of these used together:

Prof. Le Ly's Thesis Topics
... In the model the dissipation from breaking waves was estimated using similarity
theory, observation data, and wave breaking condition of the linear theory. ...

... 3 processes: vertical shear, internal wave breaking, and double diffusion. In the
