There exists the model category structure on the category of semi-simplicial sets which is transferred along the right adjoint to the forgetful functor from the classical model structure on simplicial sets (van den Berg 13). See this discussion, which seems to conclude that this is Quillen equivalent to the classical model structure on simplicial sets.

There is also a weak model category structure (Henry 18), for which the Quillen equivalence to simplicial sets is proven as Henry 18, Thm 5.5.6 (iv).

Also there is the structure of a semimodel category (Rooduijn 2018) and of a fibration category on semisimplicial sets (Sattler 18, Th, 3.18) (and cofibration category on fibrant-cofibrant objects).


As a model category-structure:

As a weak model category:

As a right semimodel category:

  • Jan Rooduijn, A right semimodel structure on semisimplicial sets, Amsterdam 2018 (pdf, mol:4787)

As a fibration category:

The above note contains a mistake in Theorem 3.43: semisimplicial sets do not form a cofibration category as considered there: (cofibration, weak equivalence)-factorizations do not generally exist (cf. the paragraph at the end of Subsection 3.2). Instead, the notion of cofibration category has to be weakened using a notion of pseudofactorizations (similar to the notion of weak model category).
