Recently I went on my annual pilgrimage to the Society of Rheology meeting in Santa Fe. A colleague (Alexei Likhtman at Reading) talked briefly about a nifty piece of software that he and Jorge Ramirez had put together called Reptate (Rheology of Entangled Polymers: Toolkit for Analysis of Theory & Experiment).

For somebody who works with entangled polymers, it is a great resource (for both theorists and experimentalists), since it obviates the need to code up different theories, worry about visualization, do time-temperature superposition etc.

It is free, works on Windows, and has some very nice tutorials.
