In order to describe the entangled network structure in polymer melts visually, we propose an evolving network model with community structure. This network model grows according to the inner-community and inter-community preferential mechanisms of both community sizes and node degrees. Numerical simulation results indicate that the cumulative distribution of community size and node degree distribution follow power-law distributions P(S≥s)∼s-υ and P(k)∼k-γ respectively, with the exponents of υ≥1 and .
