This paper considers time-delay systems with bounded disturbances. We study a new problem of finding an upper bound of an absolute value function of any given linear functional of the state vector starting from the origin of the system. Based on the Lyapunov-Krasovskii method combining with the recent Wirtinger-based integral inequality that has just been proposed by Seuret & Gouaisbaut (2013. Wirtinger-based integral inequality: application to time-delay systems. Automatica, 49, 2860-2866), sufficient conditions for the existence of an upper bound of the function are derived. The obtained results are shown to be more effective than those adapted from the existing works on reachable set bounding. Furthermore, the obtained results are applied to refine existing ellipsoidal bounds of the reachable sets. The effectiveness of the obtained results is illustrated by two numerical examples.
