They are pretty much the same except for some additional sub-models in twophaseEulerFoam, i think. Check the source code for details..

Generally speaking: TwophaseEulerFoam is for one dispersed phase and one continous phase.

multiPhaseEulerFoam is for multiple dispersed phases and a continous phase..

dear my friend

but your answer is really general to me. If you are correct, multiPhaseEulerFoam is the general state of twoPhaseEulerFoam, and so what else is needed for twoPhaseEulerFoam solver?
