Let $M$ be a category with two closed model structures $(C_q,W_q,F_q)$ and $(C_h,W_h,F_h)$, and assume that $F_h\subseteq F_q$ and $W_h \subseteq W_q$.
There is a (necessarily unique closed) mixed model structure $(C_m,W_q,F_h)$ on $M$ in which the fibrations are the $h$-fibrations, but the weak equivalences are the $q$-equivalences.
An object is cofibrant in the mixed model structure if and only if it has the $h$-homotopy type of a $q$-cofibrant object.
From the Quillen and Strøm model structures on topological spaces, we obtain a mixed model structure in which the weak equivalences are the weak homotopy equivalences, the fibrations are the Hurewicz fibrations, and the cofibrant objects are those of the homotopy type of a CW complex. (This example influences the notation above; the $q$-model structure is the Quillen one, the $h$-model structure is the “Hurewicz” (or “homotopy”) one.)
Similarly, we can mix the $q$- and $h$- model structures on chain complexes.
Let $T$ be an accessible strict 2-monad on a locally finitely presentable strict 2-category $K$. Then by a theorem of Lack, the category $T Alg_s$ of strict $T$-algebras admits a transferred model structure from the 2-trivial model structure on $K$, where the weak equivalences and fibrations are the morphisms which become internal equivalences and internal isofibrations in $K$.
On the other hand, $T Alg_s$ has its own 2-trivial model structure. Since the forgetful functor $T Alg_s \to K$ preserves equivalences and isofibrations (the latter since it has a strict left 2-adjoint), we can mix these two model structures to obtain one whose weak equivalences are the equivalences in $K$ (which are also the equivalences in the category $T Alg$ of $T$-algebras and pseudo morphisms), but whose fibrations are the isofibrations in $T Alg_s$.
