We study a one-dimensional discrete analog of the von Kármán flow, widely investigated in turbulence. A lattice of anharmonic oscillators is excited by both ends in order to create a large-scale structure in a highly nonlinear medium, in the presence of a dissipative term similar to the viscous term in a fluid. This system shows a striking similarity with a turbulent flow both at local and global scales. The properties of the nonlinear excitations of the lattice provide a partial understanding of this behavior.
