Assumed temperature frequently will result in a balanced field. The assumed thrust result would allow for a failed engine at V1 and reject or continue. If rejected, stopping on the remaining runway.
Now since the runway is contaminated stopping distance would increase, maybe significantly.
Many aircraft ago, before de-rated thrust, we could calculate assumed temperature if the runway had, as I recall 750 meters beyond balance field.
